    Scarborough takes Victory Lap on Trump Cutting Deal With Dems

    Admiring Mika: “your gut had it from the get-go. And it’s really fun to watch.”

    Joe Scarborough took an I-told-you-so victory lap on today’s Morning Joe. In the wake of President Trump cutting a deal with Pelosi and Schumer, the show aired a prepared montage of Joe, going back almost a year, predicting that Trump would wind up working with Dems, with whom, according to Scarborough, he feels more comfortable.

    When the montage ended, an admiring Mika Brzezinski said, “your gut had it from the get-go. And it’s really fun to watch.”

    Note: in the montage, Joe repeatedly predicts that Trump would put together a coalition of 175 or so Republicans, and 40-45 Democrats. In fact, it’s more likely that Trump will get virtually all Dems as a block because Nancy tells them to vote that way, or he’s going to get none of them. This is not a situation in which some moderate Democrats will come over to his side.

    Note segundo: if Joe can produce tape of himself predicting that the Kansas City Chiefs would beat Tom Brady’s Patriots by 15 points, I’ll really start believing in his powers of prognostication!

    JOE SCARBOROUGH: I think it’s going to be so surprising to a lot of Republicans to see that Donald Trump is more comfortable talking to Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer . . . He’s never hung out with guys like Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan . . . You get 175 Republicans and you get 40 to 45 Democrats . . . If you want to have a coalition in the House that gets 175 Republicans, 40, 45 Democrats, you want somebody like Donald Trump. That can get both sides together and talk . . . I think [Trump] will roll right over [the Freedom Caucus and fiscal hawks] and Democrats . . . Democrats for massive infrastructure spending . . . Start with infrastructure, you can get Democrats and Republicans on board . . . Why did they start with health care after they stuck their hand on the same stove Bill Clinton did in ’93 and Obama did in 2009? Why are they going back to it? They’re like “zzzzz” [imitates putting hand on stove]. Oh, that hurt! Zzzzz! . . . If you wade into Obamacare, it’s going to be a disaster.

    MIKA BRZEZINSKI: Okay! So why did you say — I know: he’s a Democrat, that’s one. But your gut had it from the get-go. And it’s really fun to watch.

    for these genie dummies, including rags.

    DJT has been awaiting GOP dummies and liars to do the work –
    they could not or would not – this is a one-fer

    lets see what happens over the next few months.

    Oh my god, Trump worked with democrats. The nevertrumpers were right /sarc

    Would you like me to list the times Bush (1&2), Romney, McCain, Dole, and Reagan worked with the D’s?

    Are you all that, uh, ignorant?

      No. Mr. Establishment didn’t “work” with the Collectivists. He was “worked” BY the Collectivists.

      The Art Of The Kneel…Seth Mandel.

        ” He was “worked” BY the Collectivists.”

        OK, what did their “work” get them above what the R party was trying to get?

        While she had the infatuated president’s ear, the New York Times relates: Ms. Pelosi took the opportunity to ask Mr. Trump to send out a message on Twitter emphasizing that the 800,000 immigrants enrolled in a program that he canceled this week can keep their protection from deportation and work permits over the next six months as it phases out.

        That program, of course, is DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). Contrary to the Gray Lady’s assertion — and as we explained this week — Trump has not canceled DACA. Nor is it being phased out. Trump has signaled that either it will be codified in law or he will continue the program by lawless executive action — as he is doing for the next six months, as he has done for the last eight months, and as his predecessor did for four years. In any event, as Nancy tells it, “I asked him to do it. Then boom, boom, boom! The tweet appeared and that was good.”

        You need to read outside your bubble, cultist.

          Ah yes, cultist. Coming from a deranged individual that is a card carrying member of the Cruz cult it means pretty much nothing.

          OTOH, you got nothing, you can’t think for yourself, so you link a nevertrump website with their fantasy writing.

          As I thought.

            “As I thought”.

            But you gave up “thought” months ago.

            All this post of yours is is pure ad hominem, and really, exceptionally stupid ad hominem, at that.

            You can’t refute one fact in the McCarthy analysis, which I use to state a lot of factual material in an abbreviated way. You can’t refute what Nanny Pelosi said, or what your Great Goad Cheeto DID.

            Not in the world of reality. You are pathetic. And somewhere you know it.

            You can’t answer a simple question.

            The “debt ceiling” is just a scam. Both parties are always going to raise it.

            They make statements to energize the fools, then raise it.

            Trump simply kicked the R stool out from under them. They didn’t get to do their usual meaningless posturing.

            So, go ahead, answer. What did the commie D party get that they would not have been given by the feckless commies in the R party?

            Nothing. Your just unable to admit it. See, “fools”, up above.

            What did they get…???

            Nanny had him barking and jumping through hoops like a circus poodle…!!!

            How MANY times do you want an answer, T-rump sucker?

            You are beyond irrational. Flucking tapioca. Mind in a blender.

            But thanks for the ADDITIONAL demonstration.

    Don’t forget, this Republican Congress still has not sent the spending bills to Trump for signature. Remember, give us a Republican President and we will get back to real budgets.
